  • Notes 
    • The following is from a manuscript sent to the compiler on September 28, 2000 by Michael Lee Wemple of Bay City, MI. This manuscript was written by William Barent Wemple, compiler of the first part if this genealogy from 1885-1913. The manuscript was never published.

      He was born January 24, 1797; married Maria Thompson, June 5, 1833 and died in Freedom, IL January 30, 1874. His wife was born May 29, 1816 and is still living (1896). In 1837 he walked from New York State to Illinois making the distance in six weeks. The following year (1838) he made the same trip in a covered wagon drawn by two horses in three weeks, accompanied by his wife and first child and made for himself a home in the then far west.
